Deep 95 adds three more fights despite coronavirus concerns
Deep 95 is still scheduled for the Korakuen Hall on May 6th. Three more fights were announced this week but the promotion also warned fans that the card could be postponed.
Among the latest batch of fights released on the Deep Facebook page is a bantamweight bout pitting Michihiro Omigawa against Daiki Hata:
Omigawa (19-14-1) is a UFC veteran. The 44 year old is enjoying something of a late renaissance having won two fights out of two in 2019, with victories at Deep 90 and Deep 92.
Hata (20-13-7) is a former bantamweight champion with the promotion and is coming off a win at Deep 93. The 37 year old will be in the unfamiliar position of being the younger man in this bout.
Also added to the Deep 95 card this week was a lightweight bout pitting Luiz Andrade (21-19-6) against Ryota Oki (2-0). The latter made his promotional debut at Deep 92 last year while the former has been fighting for the promotion since 2005.
The other fight added to the card is a bantamweight bout between Takashi Takano (1-2) and Chihaya Yoneyama (9-1-1). As previously announced Satoshi Yamasu puts his featherweight title on the line against Juntaro Ushiku in the main event.
Last month Deep 94 took place at the Korakuen Hall. In the main event Ryuichiro Sumimura scored a decision win over Yuta Watanabe to retain his welterweight title.
